Racial Equality Project

Creating awareness and action for the realization of racial equality for all.

Racial Equality Project: Diversity & Inclusion

Universal Spirit Center is committed to inviting Diversity and embodying the practices of Inclusion in our community and in our spiritual presence in the world. 

What is Diversity and Inclusion:

They are complementary terms that depend on each other.  Diversity describes the variation in personal, physical, and social characteristics that exist, while inclusion refers to the procedures organizations implement to integrate everyone.  In other words, diversity indicates the “what” and inclusion the “how”. This is a living document that will have resources to help us all take steps to become more inclusive in our community and within our family and friends.  We challenge you to participate by visiting this page, sharing this document and joining us at our meeting (every 2nd & 4th Tuesday @ 4pm via the community room link on the USC website) and by sending us your suggestions and or questions.

Steering Committee: Gino Walker, Carolyn Floyd, Pat Andrus and Cathleen Cienfuegos

Watch this historic speech given by

Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez – who had been a leading voice immediately after the attack on her school – took to the stage in Washington DC for six minutes and 20 seconds, much of that in silence. She says it was the amount of time it took a shooter to kill 17 people at her school in Florida

National Hispanic Heritage Month (Spanish: Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana) is a period from 15 September to 15 October in the United States for recognizing the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.

To overcome racial & sexual inequality, we must confront our history. We are all apart of our history
